It happens, unfortunately. Still, you're culture is excellent and the flowers look very promising.

this is much more in keeping with your albinistic collection tendencies... :)
nice flowering...

have you seen humboldtii clones other than the ones from ecuagenera? they seem to be the (only?) ones that are readily available.

Bummer! It turns out that this plant was mislabeled....
Most heartfelt commiserations, Leslie! I damn well know the feeling!
My life with Paph. philippinense has been strewn with thorns and lots of stones in the shoe. It all started with the first philli, that I succeeded in flowering. After anxious/expectant waiting in what felt like ages, it finally opened.... and was a St.Swithin!

PS. If short on a clonal name, I' ve noticed that Ecuagenera has a humboldtii 'Fortuna', may I for your wallisii propose 'Misfortuna'

got it thanx....

funny that i purchased a 'popowii' from Alexj at the 2018 redlands show... mainly because the experience of buying popowii from popow orchids seemed fun to me... :)

and no i'm leaving that tag as is...

Leslie, we are looking forward to see the many flowers open fully... I'm sure, It's going to be a gorgeous sight, after all "what's in a name ..." ;)

not that one.. but 2 different clones form equagenera...

last one just dropped its last flower... only 2 inflorescences and 1 flower per... first bloom... one flower was spectacular (i can say that because i didn't photograph it... :) ) larger and longer petals..... than the other clone... we'll see how that all works out next year... (btw, i flowered one of my tonsum albas from sam... slightly wonky, but seems large... i'll pm you a photo)
